How do we respond to violence within our own communities without relying on the police or other state systems? What does it mean to be accountable to harm that we, or our organization, or someone we know has caused?
In our theatre community, we've seen multiple public accountability efforts, demanding that theaters account for the harm they’ve caused and make radical changes to repair and transform forward. Most notably, we’ve seen the Living Document of POC Experiences in Bay Area Theatre Companies and the #WeSeeYou demands from BIPOC Theatre Professionals to White American Theatres.
In this two-hour class, Mia Mingus will offer a basic introduction to what accountability means as well as guidelines for action steps, from a transformative justice lens. She will offer some introductory and contextual basics and core concepts to transformative justice.
This educational space is open to everyone. The format will primarily be lecture-style with room for a Q & A discussion.
Mia Mingus is a writer, educator, and community organizer for disability justice and transformative justice. She has been engaged in TJ work for more than a decade at both the local and national level, specifically focusing on intimate and sexual violence, especially child sexual abuse.
